The Unexpected Bridal Gown Trend That’s Going To Be Huge

Share

There’s something about shopping for a wedding dress that elicits a willingness to go bold, whether that means a more revealing neckline, a fitted silhouette, a full skirt or a plunging back. While we’re all for it, there are also more subtle ways to stand out if you’re so inclined. This season, short sleeves are a refreshing and polished alternative with classic appeal, and they’re our pick for those seeking more coverage. With famous brides like Kate Middleton, Kim Kardashian, Olivia Palermo and Allison Williams all opting for long sleeves in recent years, we think an abbreviated version is the 2017 update set to take over. Here, an edit of our favorite short-sleeved gowns that feel entirely modern while evoking a sense of vintage glamour—from under $500 to designer takes.
